NickieSIXX 's Thoughts:

This is what I chose to wear Monday night to the IFB Dress-Up Soiree. If you’re not familiar, IFB is an acronym for Independent Fashion Bloggers.
Is it too bold of me to call myself such? They accepted me into their little club, so I guess not.
You be the judge

But back to the dress. I work at a place called Alberto Makali, of which I design eveningwear….and this my friends, is one of my many creations in my not so lengthy 6-year career.
I loved the color on this, the metal italian taffeta, and I just felt it was perfect for such an event where I could go all out.
Maybe OK, or maybe I just look like a guest at a black-tie wedding? Either way, I enjoyed being able to wear it—what a gratifying feeling and it makes all my efforts worth it when I can actually step foot into one of my own creations.

So hey!, move to NYC already so you can attend these parties with me! Seriously, just look at the good times to be had!

Nikki, I saw that you were the designer of this dress and I just wanted to tell you how beautiful I think it is! I am a grade 12 student from Toronto Canada and I walked into a store yesterday looking for my perfect formal dress and fell in love with your design in powder (dusty) blue. Its stunning and I bought it without hesitation! It also fits like a dream! Just thought I'd let u know! Syd

I was so looking forward to you attending. I read that you were a bit under-the-weather for the IFB party, hope you're feeling better!
